Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Set in extensive grounds on a level site, with beautifully landscaped gardens and gracious mature trees, Metlifecare Oaks is a lovely location for retirement and residential care. The village offers independent living in 16 villas along with a new residential care facility, The Lees Centre, which offers resident’s an extensive range of first-class leisure facilities located on the ground floor.

With many of your everyday tasks such as gardening and exterior maintenance taken care of, you’ll have time to indulge in an active, carefree lifestyle and to make the most of what life has to offer.

You may wish to join in the activities on site and play a full part in village life, socialising in a friendly community of like-minded people. Or you can relax and take things easy, living privately and independently in your own home – secure in the knowledge that everything’s available on your doorstep, as and when you require. Of course, your family and friends are always welcome to visit.

At Papakura Oaks, you have the choice of an active lifestyle or a quiet life, companionship or privacy, with everything provided for you within a safe, secure and supportive environment – and always with the enduring commitment of Metlifecare behind you.

We enjoy excellent associations with the Papakura community and there are on-going relationships with schools and community groups which provide a wonderful and enriching connection for residents.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.


In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
